Lost in Emotions

Class: The Writer’s Craft (EWC4U1)
Date: May 20, 2008
The Assignment: Write a poem.

I see life and death and
everything in between
happen before my eyes.
Feelings not imagined
I find stirred up inside.

Is it love? Am I sick?
Is that all? Is this it?
Many questions answered,
but even more to come.
Where do we go from here?

Telling so many lies
we’re going to explode;
it’s nearing nine o’clock.
Just take my hand, brother;
your secret’s under lock.

Somewhat funny to think
and maybe even sad,
but it has only been
two hours in front of
my television screen.

“Lost” season finale:
Thursday, May twenty-ninth.
